Abstract

No new information on Agriocnemis corbeti has been published since its original description from 1978 based on a teneral male and five teneral females from Dehra Dun Valley, Uttarakhand, India. Based on a study of the original description it is concluded that the characters mentioned in the diagnosis are of little use as they can be found in the immature stages of several species of Agriocnemis. The characters mentioned in the description are difficult to interpret but the drawing of the appendages suggest that A. corbeti is conspecific with A. pygmaea. Agriocnemis corbeti is therefore considered a synonym of A. pygmaea. Records of A. pieris from Bangladesh are discussed and are all judged to belong to A. lacteola, with the former considered not to occur in Bangladesh.
